Today I decided I wanted to wear a denim pencil skirt but didn't have one. Luckily I had an old pair of jeans that were no longer my style & had just enough sewing skills to upcycle those duds into a punky sexy skirt. All you need to do is cut along the inner seams then put the parts back together flattened out, and sew along your new seamline. I made this skirt in 10 minutes flat just in time to get on my bike and ride to the bank for an appointment!
BEWARE: Riding a bike in a pencil skirt is not easy and may make you feel you are insane to have tried it. Remember to hike up that skirt before mounting the bike and beg the forces that be that the back seam doesn't split. ;)
When I got home I took the left over jean legs & some purple scrap fabric (to match my purple bike) and I whipped up this little backpack with drawstring straps so I can carry my water and rice cakes with me while I ride around. The design for the backpack was inspired by the Generation T book!
PS- the shirt I am wearing was gifted to me from Clothing Of The American Mind, the necklace is handmade with organic cotton by me for The Oko Box, and the pink belt is vintage.
